We have dozens of this particular type of spider in our yard in Fairfax. Does anyone know its name?

They may be a Western spotted orbweaver but i cant be 100% sure on that. How big are they?? These guys were about as big a quarter.

I posted a picture of the one by our front door in Fairfax. It is about the size of a quarter. Looks the same to me (although you are the better photographer).
